Public Benefits, Welfare & Medical Assistance: Selective Service Registration

From Reentry

In order to receive many public benefits, including student loans and job training, males 18 years of age and older need to register for the Selective Service. Some reentering individuals did not register for the Selective Service, and therefore are denied these benefits. This section contains information about how to address problems resulting from a failure to register before the age of 26. Individuals who did not register should obtain a status information letter.
